Alberta court grants Unifor injunction blocking Suncor from random drug testing

first_imgEDMONTON – A union that represents 3,000 oilsands workers at Suncor Energy sites in northeastern Alberta has won a court injunction against random drug testing.Unifor Local 707-A had argued that random testing would be a violation of workers’ rights and privacy.Calgary-based Suncor (TSX:SU) has said random tests are needed to bolster safety and wanted to start the program this month.In his ruling, Queen’s Bench Justice Paul Belzil said the privacy rights of employees are just as important as safety.“In my view the balance of convenience favours granting the injunction,” Belzil said in a written judgment released Thursday.“The request by Suncor to increase the scope of drug and alcohol testing by implementing random testing would necessarily impact employees who have no drug and alcohol issues and who have not been involved in workplace incidents.”Belzil noted that Suncor already has non-random drug and alcohol testing. He said granting the injunction would not result in an unsafe work environment.He said both parties agree that the Suncor workplace is dangerous, but agree on virtually nothing else.Sneh Seetal, a Suncor spokeswoman, said the company would be filing an immediate and expedited appeal of the injunction ruling.“We are surprised and disappointed by the decision, especially in light of the evidence that we put forward of the pressing safety concerns associated with the ongoing alcohol and drug problems in the workplace in the Regional Municipality of Wood Buffalo,” Seetal said from Calgary.“Preventing Suncor from taking steps to address known safety hazards associated with workplace alcohol and drug use is not reasonable.”Ken Smith, president of the union local, said Unifor members are happy with the judge’s decision.“We are very pleased with the ruling and that weight was given to a person’s dignity on the job and that human rights are being upheld for the time being,” he said from Fort McMurray.“Worker safety is the No. 1 priority here.”Suncor and the union have been battling over random drug tests since 2012. Unifor has sought leave to appeal an earlier court ruling to the Supreme Court of Canada.Belzil said if leave to appeal is granted, both sides should co-operate to resolve the case as quickly as possible.If the high court decides not to hear the case, Suncor and Unifor should go to arbitration, he suggested.Suncor presented evidence in court last month that 59 union employees have tested positive for alcohol or drugs over the last four years.The company said drugs — including marijuana, ecstasy, cannabis resin, cocaine, crack cocaine, methamphetamine — and prescription pills such as oxycodone have been found at Suncor operations and work camps.The company’s oilsands projects around Fort McMurray operate 24 hours a day, every day of the year. Employees work 12-hour shifts operating some of the biggest and most complicated industrial equipment in the world.last_img read more

United Way funding two new programs

A project that teaches children about body rights awareness is one of two new programs to receive funding from the United Way of Haldimand and Norfolk.Each year a group of volunteers representing various sectors from Haldimand and Norfolk form the allocation committee. Using their experience the committee allocates funds to programs they feel will meet the most urgent needs of local residents.Taylor the Turtle: My Body Belongs to Me originated in 2011.Carrie Sinkowski, creator and manager of the Taylor the Turtle program, works at the Sexual Assault Centre of Brant and created Taylor as a means to speak to children about the rights they have to their body and surroundings.Funding of $8,000 from United Way of Haldimand and Norfolk is being used to develop a new lesson plan based on identities, creating promotional items, and printing new facilitator kits.Sinkowski runs orientation lessons for people that work with children and want to use Taylor as a way to teach body awareness to the kids. These lessons can be for parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, school teachers, social workers, and Sunday school teachers.The program does not actually talk about sexual abuse, but instead is focused on emotional literacy, resilience, and expression abilities.“We’re excited. We’ve had really good feedback on our program, and one of the nicest things for me has been that a lot of the growth of the program is so organic,” said Sinkowski.A second new program that has received United Way funding for 2019 is Path to Possibilities – Residents of Trillium Manor.This program is rent geared to income housing for individuals living with a mental illness. It is receiving $10,259 in funding.The individuals learn skills to live independently while living in this home. The skills include budgeting, healthy eating, grocery shopping, critical thinking, problem solving, and interpersonal relationship building.In total there are 15 programs throughout Haldimand and Norfolk receiving funding from the United Way this year, serving over 12,500 individuals. read more

CAPP submits recommendations to Albertas Royalty Review Panel

CAPP submits recommendations to Alberta’s Royalty Review Panel by Crystal Laderas Posted Oct 26, 2015 12:41 pm MDT The Canadian Association of Petroleum Producers wants three years notice before the NDP government changes royalty rates.CAPP submitted a list of 60 recommendations to the province’s panel, reviewing changes to oil and gas producers.The group asked to keep existing cost deductions and consider introducing new ones to offset recent tax hikes.CEO Tim McMillan said that they want Alberta to re-gain its top position in the global market.“We’ve seen Alberta drop from attracting about 36 per cent of North America’s oil and gas investments two decades ago, to today we’re only attracting about 17 per cent. And we think that there’s several ways to improve our system, to make us more competitive and ultimately reach the goals that the panel has set out for itself,” he said.McMillan added that stability and certainty is very important to the industry, but CAPP is committed to being constructive during this royalty review, and to putting forth ideas that will leave them stronger in the long run.

Few Stars Have Ever Fallen As Fast As Carmelo Anthony

A player had to be very good in order to even suffer so large a decline in the first place, and Anthony certainly fit that bill … once upon a time. Many of the names on that list managed to bounce back and be quality contributors going forward, though few were as old (and none as bad) as Anthony has been recently. So in that sense, the collapse of Anthony’s game has been historic — we’ve never really seen a star’s numbers fall off quite so much in such a short time.If the Rockets do end up cutting ties with Anthony, he may still draw interest from certain NBA teams. (At the very least, the Melo-to-the-Lakers rumor mill is already starting to rumble back to life.) And, however small, there is some evidence Anthony could be more effective in a different system than that of the Rockets, where his game never meshed with Mike D’Antoni’s overarching philosophy at either end of the court. But whether due to fit or declining skills, it has been a nothing less than stunning fall for Anthony these past few seasons. 5Dwyane Wade28-31+9.4+5.9+6.33.9-5.5 Carmelo Anthony may have played his last game as a member of the Houston Rockets. Or maybe not. Who knows? Either way, the Carmelo Experiment in Houston hasn’t gone according to plan over the first month of the season. Coming off a charmed 65-win campaign in 2017-18, this year’s Rockets are below .500 — and while Houston’s problems run deeper than Anthony, he has done little to suggest they’re merely coincidental with his presence on the team.Going into the season, my colleague Chris Herring wrote that Anthony’s success or failure in Houston would largely depend on his ability to curtail his usual scoring tendencies and play effectively off the ball — finding opportunities for open shots (presumably off passes from Chris Paul and James Harden) and knocking them down. In addition, Anthony would need to prove he wasn’t a total liability on defense, considering Houston lost lockdown forwards Trevor Ariza and Luc Mbah a Moute over the summer.Unfortunately, Anthony hasn’t really done much in any facet of that role so far. He has dialed back the share of team offense he’s using — down to a career-low 20.5 percent usage rate — which would normally be a positive sign of accepting a diminished function in the offense. But he’s also stopping the ball too often — he has assisted just 2.9 percent of teammate buckets while on the floor — and his shooting hasn’t been up to par. Anthony is hitting catch-and-shoot jumpers at an effective field goal percentage of just 51.8 percent, which according to Second Spectrum ranks 32nd out of 48 shooters with at least 50 attempts. More concerning, Anthony also ranks 224th out of 266 qualified shooters in overall quantified shot quality, Second Spectrum’s metric for judging the expected value of a shot (based on distance, defender proximity, etc.). Anthony has always excelled at making tough shots, but in order to fit into Houston’s obsessively efficiency-maximizing scheme, he needed to prove he could generate easy ones, too.Moreover, Anthony has been a prime culprit in Houston’s drop from sixth in defensive efficiency last season to 20th this year. According to, the Rockets are allowing an eye-popping 119.2 points per 100 possessions with Anthony on the court, 10.1 more than they do with him off the floor. That 109.1 mark without Anthony would rank 14th in the league anyway, so it’s more than just Anthony that’s causing the Rockets to slip from their defensive form of last season. His arrival certainly hasn’t helped the cause, though.Anthony’s friend (and fellow Banana Boater) Dwyane Wade tweeted Sunday that fans and journalists were trying to make Anthony “the fall guy” for Houston’s slow start, and he has a point. Looking beyond Anthony, Houston has three rotation players — Eric Gordon, Gerald Green and Michael Carter-Williams — with true shooting percentages below 50 percent. Harden hasn’t quite recaptured his MVP form from last year, and Paul appears to be slowing down at age 33. The Rockets look sluggish (they rank 28th in pace) and are making only 32.7 percent of their many three-point attempts, which ranks a shocking 25th in the league.1For comparison’s sake, they ranked 13th last year.But Anthony is also hitting new statistical lows in what has been an otherwise Hall of Fame career. At age 33 with Oklahoma City last season, he’d never been worse according to Player Efficiency Rating (12.7), Win Shares per 48 minutes (.071) or Box Plus/Minus (-3.8). Although there was hope he’d just slumped in a bad situation on OKC, Anthony is blowing away those old career-worst marks this season: He currently has a PER of 11.5 with .043 WS/48 and a BPM of -5.1.It’s not unheard of to see a player dip so drastically in production as he ages into his 30s, but it is shocking to see it happen to a player who has been as good as Anthony has been and also hasn’t suffered a major injury. According to Basketball-Reference’s data, Anthony’s 7.7-point decline in BPM from 2015-16 to 2018-19 is tracking to be the largest since the ABA merger for any player who logged at least 50 percent of team minutes over each season in a four-year span.

New Caterpillar 789D mining truck aims to deliver greater performance and productivity

first_imgThe new Cat® 789D incorporates new features to boost performance and productivity and to enhance safety and serviceability. A number of new options provide customers the flexibility to configure the truck for each application. The 789D builds on more than 25 years of proven performance for the 789 model, and it retains many of the proven technologies of the 789C, which the new model replaces. Its nominal payload is 181 t, an increase of 2.5% from the previous model.  The mechanical drive train is powered by the Cat 3516C EUI quad turbocharged diesel engine in the truck’s most productive arrangement. Where applicable, the 3516C engine is compliant with US EPA emissions regulations. The 3516C delivers 1,566 kW gross power, about 10% more than the previous model, for increased speed on grade. The 3516C in standard configuration is capable at altitudes up to 3,658 m with no derate.The Cat 3516B engine also is available for mines requiring an engine with gross power of 1,417 kW to match with existing fleets.  Caterpillar also introduces the Combination body for the 789D. Based on the dual slope design, the Combination body is a multi-purpose, high volume body designed to reduce haulage costs of well fragmented, low density material. To enable mining customers to optimise their trucks for the application, four additional updated bodies are available: Dual Slope, X, MSD II and Gateless Coal.The 789D offers additional flexibility. It has been designed to accommodate larger tyres, 40.00-R57 and 42/90R57. The standard tyre size is 37.00-R57. In appropriate hauling conditions, larger tyres will have longer lives and reduced costs per unit of material hauled.The 789D retains the proven Cat oil-cooled braking system, which combines the service, secondary, parking brake and retarding functions in the same robust system for optimum braking efficiency. Four-corner retarding with 60/40 percent split (rear/front) in braking effort provides superior control in slippery conditions. Balanced front to rear brake torque provides exceptional braking performance and minimises wheel lock-up, especially during retarding.Caterpillar has packaged popular attachments into arrangements for the 789D so that customers can select a cab equipped with desired features. A Standard Cab, Deluxe Cab and Deluxe Cold Weather Cab are available. All are ergonomically designed to promote operator comfort and efficiency, and the Deluxe Cabs feature a heated and ventilated operator seat. Diagonal stairways and an optional powered ground-level stairway ease access and egress.The truck design enhances sight lines to the haul road and operating area. The air tank has been relocated off of the deck for enhanced sight lines to the right of the operator. The 789D also is equipped with the Object Detection system as standard equipment from the factory. The system uses both radars and cameras to give the operator audible and visual alerts of detected objects. The system enhances the view around the truck at low speeds.The 789D also is available worldwide in an XQ configuration for reduced sounds levels in the surrounding environment. The configuration uses sound attenuating materials and designs for significantly reduced spectator sound. For maintenance personnel safety and efficiency, daily service points are easy to access, and most are at ground level. Isolation and lock out systems also are conveniently located. A maintenance platform provides access to the engine, steering hydraulic tank and battery compartment. Tie off points are provided for work above ground level. An optional fast fill service centre enables high speed fueling and oil exchange, and optional quick-change rims are available to simplify tyre replacement. A number of changes extend reliability and durability. A new pump drive system provides continuous rear axle filtration. Benefits include cleaner oil, less downtime and improved component life. Extended life disc brakes are now standard equipment and may achieve up to double the wear life of the previously used brake material. The brakes are resistant to glazing and deliver consistent braking power and reduced maintenance. New air intake and filters have a new seal, which provides easier servicing and lower maintenance costs.Brief Specifications for 789D Mining Truck Engine modelsCat 3516C EUI or Cat 3516B Nominal payload181 tonnes (200 tons) Gross machine weight324 319 kg (715,000 lb) Net engine power1468 kW (1,969 hp) or 1335 kW (1,791 hp) Top speed, loaded57.2 km/h (35.5 mph) Gross engine power1566 kW (2,100 hp) or 1417 kW (1,900 hp)last_img read more

Hillgrove looking to expand Adelaide Hills CuAu mining

first_imgA program to develop a wider potential mining footprint around its Kanmantoo copper-gold mine is well advanced according to Adelaide Hills miner, Hillgrove Resources Ltd.Addressing the Paydirt 2018 South Australian Resources and Energy Investment Conference in Adelaide last week, Hillgrove Resources’ Principal Geologist, Peter Rolley, said the producing Kanmantoo mine is located within a significant copper-gold province and offers substantial growth activity.“Our first underground mining operation is permitted and design work is in progress to facilitate the transition from open-cut to underground,” Rolley said. “But we are also assessing near mine projects for underground mining extensions or those which offer large magmatic copper-gold sources.”“In addition, we will commence maiden drilling in September on the 2-km long Kanappa copper-gold zone near Sedan and then most likely the 1.7-km long Mt Rhine system, 10 km north of Kanappa but presents as a next drill target. These are two great targets and have exhibited in sampling, robust grades.”The current Kanmantoo mine produces copper, gold and silver from a number of structurally controlled shears, lodes and breccias with gold grades as high as 32 g/t over 5 m at the Spitfire target.“We are utilising existing data and knowledge to identify new copper-gold targets to help build operations,” Rolley said. “Previous drilling has already identified a number of underground targets for infill drilling but the overall 5-km long Kanmantoo mine corridor has not seen any systematic exploration since 2008.“The focus back in 2008 was on permitting for the subsequent Kanmantoo open-pit operations. There are significant drill intercepts there that to date, have not been followed up so we are starting to prioritise targets along this structural corridor.”last_img read more

In a music video for the song ‘Out Ere’, Ajibola makes explicit references to drug dealing. The video was introduced in prosecution evidence and shown to the court.In the video Ajibola, or Toxic, recites the lyrics “weight [drugs] in the trap and I’ll be done if feds [police] raid it, I’m one step ahead I ain’t complacent”. After issuing a warrant for his arrest last April, police officers forced entry to Ajibola’s Willesden address last year. Ajibola then jumped from a second floor window in an attempt to escape but was detained a short distance away on the roof of a garage and arrested by police. The second floor of Ajibola’s multi-occupancy address was described in court as a “drug preparation factory”.Police found what was later confirmed to be 241 grams of high-purity cocaine and mixing agents, along with nearly 60 grams of crack cocaine, and 240 grams of cannabis. The potential street value of the drugs was in excess of £30,000, police have said. In Ajibola’s first-floor bedroom, police also found £13,000 in cash, a custom gold pendant and chain valued at around £15,000 and high-value clothing valued at more than £10,000. All of these items were seized. Passing sentence today, the judge said that Ajibola was connected to “an extremely sophisticated, profitable drug operation”. center_img London rapper who bragged about drug possession jailed for five years for drug possession Adetokunbo Ajibola, otherwise known by his stage name Trapstar Toxic, admitted possessing cocaine and cannabis.

Netflixs random play button is a bingewatchers dream come true

first_img Share your voice Is Netflix too expensive? Netflix doesn’t think so Comments Mobile Netflix 12center_img 1:36 Now playing: Watch this: Tags Show repeaters rejoice. Anadolu Agency/Getty Images Odds are you’ve watched your favorite show on Netflix enough times to pick up on the overarching plot no matter what episode you’re watching. Of course, you can manually choose an episode at “random,” but that takes a lot of work. Now, however, Netflix may do that work for you. At least on Android.”We are testing the ability for members to play a random episode from different TV series on the Android mobile app,” a Netflix spokesperson said in an email. “These tests typically vary in length of time and by region, and may not become permanent.”Android Police spotted the test earlier Friday. From the screenshots, it looks like the feature would work similarly to shuffle in your music app. Tapping the thumbnail of a show will play a random episode. It appears Netflix is testing The Office, Our Planet and New Girl, according to screenshots. Of course, this wouldn’t be helpful for all shows — especially plot-heavy programs like Ozark or Stranger Things. But for those of us who restart Friends or The Office as soon as we finish it, a random play feature has been a long time coming.

His works predominantly reflect his experiences of the place of his birth. The vivid and dominating greens in his canvas can almost be considered as a tribute to his vision and impression of the North-East. His current series of work, again characterized by shades of green, is a celebration of both nature and human existence.  Also Read – Leslie doing new comedy special with NetflixUsing photoink, Marndi depicts people and faces, realistically.
